Direct Educator Connection:
Richard D’Aveni is one of the pre-eminent strategists of his generation. Best known for his work on hypercompetition, D'Aveni is Professor of Strategic Management at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, a winner of the prestigious A. T. Kearney Award for his research, and a consultant to organizations and individuals worldwide. He holds a PhD from Columbia University, and his undergraduate degree from Cornell University, as well as being a CPA and an attorney.
Strategy is dynamic. “D’Aveni is strategy’s answer to realpolitik. The champion of dynamic strategy over static analysis, he is a battlefield general in a world dominated by Ivy League theorists,” says The (London) Times. Tom Peters, co-author of In Search Of Excellence, says: “Rich’s work is uniformly first rate.”
Strategy captured. Richard D’Aveni is the author of several highly influential articles in the Harvard Business Review and Sloan Management Review, as well as Hypercompetition (1994) which coined the phrase and became a global bestseller. Fortune described it as "a modern-day analogue to The Art of War".
He is also the author of Strategic Supremacy (2001) and Beating the Commodity Trap: How Smart Companies Out-maneuver their Rivals to Win the Price War, published by Harvard Business Press in 2010.
Innovative thinking. D’Aveni is featured in the Thinkers 50 ranking of the world’s most important management thinkers and his work is credited with creating a new paradigm in the field of strategic management based on temporary advantages – using rapid maneuvering rather than defensive barriers.
Trusted advice. He consults to Fortune 500 companies as well as some of the world’s wealthiest families, helping them shape their winning strategies. His client list includes some of the world’s best-known companies. Among them: Anheuser-Busch, Corning, GE, Motorola, Pepsico, and Schering Plough; and major European companies, such as Fininvest Italia, Philips Electronics, and Reuters.
Inspiring insights. A highly sought after advisor and speaker, D’Aveni has addressed senior executive audiences all over the world, including the World Economic Forum’s Annual Summit at Davos, Switzerland, and numerous other CEO forums around the world.
